Retention & Expansion

Burleson has enjoyed over 100% population growth since the beginning of this century. It’s ranked one of the best places for families to live in Texas. What that means, besides the fact that we’re getting bigger, is that people who move to Burleson stay in Burleson. That means a reliable workforce that is motivated to do their best so they can remain in this wonderful community and enjoy all that it has to offer for them and their families.
